I loved this Caesar. Got it will 204000 and took it to 220000 and only fixed a wire with supplies I already had. Never stranded me and even when the wire broke she still got me home. Only sold it because I began commuting and the gas mileage sucked. But that is the only bad thing I have to say about the car. Put all those miles on it and still sold her for a profit. EXCELLENT CAR

This has been an amazing car for me. I got it with a bit over 100,000 miles on it, and have not had to bring it to the shop for anything besides normal maintenance in the three years and additional 60,000 miles I've put on it, even after sitting twice for periods of four months when I went to school. Seats are very comfortable. Coming to this car from an old very luxurious Cadillac was an easy transition; the Volvo is about as comfortable but handles like a sports car. Very grippy, poised, and well balanced. 200 hp isn't a ton, but the large amount of torque hits hard at any rev. It has little cool features too like the door handles and a drip edge so so don't get wet when you pay a toll.

This car is wonderful. I felt very safe and comfortable in my volvo. I purchased this car about a year ago. The only problem (purchased with the car) was a rear main seal leak. Car need more power and rear leg room. massive trunk, comfortable ride, maximum visability, ease of drive, turning radius, and fuel economy make this car perfect for travel.
This year all Volvo 960s are equipped with front seat side-impact airbags, a multistep power door locking system that increases driver safety when entering the vehicle in parking lots and a life insurance policy that pays $250,000 to the estate of any occupant who loses their life in the 960 as a result of a car accident.
